'While documentary photography is generally well understood, the diverse traditions of conceptual, semi-factual or entirely fictional art photography remain a mystery to many. Why Art Photography? is an accessible and intelligent guide, which addresses key themes like "authenticity" and "objectivity" by examining the thought-provoking work of living, often younger, artists.' – Dr Sarah Thornton, author of Seven Days in the Art World
'The reader joins Soutter's class to gain access to the rarefied debates encountered at the cutting edge of contemporary art photography.' - The Art Newspaper
'Soutter has accomplished her mission: to those in the know and those who want to be, she has explained not just the whys but the how-tos of contemporary art photography.' - Source
